we're live from the spot where the wedding is set to take place early this tuesday morning july the wedding is set to take place early this tuesday morning july 27th, 2010. captioning funded by cbs sgnd good tuesday morning to you. i'm erica hill. >> i'm harry smith. >> a lot of activity. rhinebeck, new york, where it is all but official, i guess, that chelsea clinton will be getting married and now the price tag we're hearing, according to the daily news, $3 million. one of my favorites, they say potential costs for a media consultant, $100,000. which is interesting because there's not a lot of talking going on. >> didn't the people have to like sign cop if i dfif confid agreements? and that's its own stimulus
package. >> very nice. so you're welcome. we'll have more on that ahead. we begin with that monumental leak of classes filed documents on the afghanistan war. the white house in damage control mode while the leaks raise more questions about that war back here if the u.s. cbs news chief national security correspondent david martin is at the pentagon this morning with the latest. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the dust has yet to settle on that first avalanche of secrets and already the head of wikileakss is talking about releasing 15,000 more classified documents. the pentagon says it will take days if not weeks to assess the damage caused by what's already been posted on the wikileak website. white house spokesman robert gibbss said people's lives have been put in danger. >> if somebody is cooperating with the federal government and their name is listed in an action report, i don't think it's a stretch to believe that that could potentially put a group or an individual at great personal risk. >> reporter: u.s. military
officials assume the documents were leaked by 22-year-old private first class bradley manning, who is already charged with illegally downloading a classified video of a helicopter gun ship shooting civilians in the streets of baghdad, a video which ended up on wikileakss. the documents cover the years 2004 to 2009 and describe in detail why the u.s. is in so much trouble in afghanistan. the u.s. has been fighting with too few troops and causing too many civilian casualties. the afghan government is corrupt and inefficient. pakistan is an uncertain ally which at times has assumed the sametal ban that is killing american soldiers in afghanistan. the head of wikileaks call it is one damm thing after another. >> this is the story of the war since 2004. most of the deaths in this war are as a result of the every day
squaller of war, not the big incidences. >> reporter: the white house is trying to downplay the substance of these documents as old news, but congress will have a say on that when a intending bi ispend the afghan war comes up for a vote before the august recess. and in another war development, one of those two missing sailors has now been identified. he is 30-year-old justin mcneley whose body was recovered sunday. the other sailor remains missing and unidentified. >> david, thanks. david martin this morning at the pentagon. joining us this morning is pentagon spokesman geoff morrell. good to have you with us. do you know at this h point who is responsible for this leak? >> we do not. we have a very robust investigation that's under way to try to determine who is responsible for breaking the law here and leaking this classified information that could endanger the lives of our forces and imperil our nation's security. but at this point we're in the early stages of that.
our foerous frank sli to try to determine if there is anything in these 90,000 pages of documents that could indeed endanger our forces. we got a team doing that round the clock. this was dumped on us hike it was dumped on you all sunday night. it would have been nice had this organization had the organization to come to us and work with us to try to figure out if there's anything in here that could endanger our informations. gr and there is more to come. how many people have access to this type of information? >> we're in the going to get into sort of the scope of what was involved here in terms of the databases that may have been breached. suffice to say -- >> but is it a large number of people? >> it's classified for a reason. this involves secrets that should not be disseminated in to the public domain and could potentially endanger our operations and forces in afghanistan. >> there is understandably shom concern over the troops and how it could effect them and about all the relationships that are
in the region. president karzai coming out with the response, the recent documents leaked clearly support and verify the success over terrorism does not come with fighting in afghan villages but by targeting its sources across the borders. it seems to elude to pakistan and support to the taliban. is there any way to be sure that the billions of dollars in aid is not being used to support terrorists? >> i think that this shows that this information, though new and unprecedented in the shear size of the leak, the information itself, the content of these documents, is not make yourly new or illuminating. it points to issues that we've identified as being problem areas for months if not years. the underresourcing of the conflict, the president has tripled the number of forces there, the fact that civilian casualties has been a problem which we've been trying to deal with. u.s. caused civilian casualties down by a third this this year. taliban civilian casualties nearly doubled. and the pakistani partnership
that is so vital to our success in afghanistan is one that has been trending in the right direction for months if not a couple of years now. so the most recent of these documents is at least six months old by now and that is clearly out of step with where this relationship is and has been heading for some time now. >> so you're saying it's trending to a better place, but is there any way to know whether or not u.s. money being sent to pakistan is supporting terrorists who could be endangering u.s. troops? >> we have as many controls as we can have on our aid to pakistan. $1.5 billion a year over the next five years. but remember, in is a sovereign country who we are partnering with in the war on terror. we're working with them together to go after the terrorists in their midst who not only threaten their government and our forces in afghanistan, but our well, here state side as well as our am liallies around e world. >> thanks for your time. now to the big shakeup at bp.
te tony hayward is stepping down and for the first time, an american will at that time helm of the firm formerly known as british petroleum. mark till lips is in london with the latest. good morning, mark. >> reporter: good morning, harry. well, bp has finally confirmed what everybody expected, which is that ceo tony hayward, the man who had become very much the villain of the gulf oil spill piece, is leaving effective october 1st. that b.wanted to preserve its american business, it really had no choice. tony hayward is the bone being thrown to the angry dog of public opinion. the gulf oil spill happened on his watch and whatever other talents he brought to the cleanup and well capping effort, a public relations touch wasn't one of them. one comment in particular stuck to him like an oil slick on a gulf beach. >> nobody wants this thing over more than i do. about i'd like my life back.
>> reporter: as sacrificial lambs go, tony hayward is an expensive one. the golden handshake will involve a year's salary of $1.6 million, a pension of about a million dollars a year, and bp shares that could be worth millions if the stock price recovers. hayward will also sit on the board of bp's joint venture in russia. >> it is very tragic. i'd like to get more people out here to see it. >> reporter: his replacement, robert dudley, will give the company an american face and an about-face of bp's image is something the company's chairman admits it badly needs. >> i think it became cheer that you needed in this case a new face, a new man to lead this and of course especially america is our big he is market that is also important. so i think it became difficult for him to take on that task. >> reporter: bp estimates that its losses in relation to the oil spill will top $30 billion.
bill goion with a b. and that's only if it isn't found guilty of gross negligence. >> mark phillips in london. thank you very much. joining us now rebecca jarvis. good morning. i want to put pictures of hayward and dudley. let's talk about dudley and why this guy. >> so what bp faces ahead is a pr battle. the issue for bp is that americans have lost truss in the company. the company does 40% of its business here. dudley came from america, he was born in new york, he grew up in mississippi. they like that about him. he fits the right profile for regaining trust in americans. >> let's talk about bp losses because this is a big company. used to making lots of profits. the profits from a year ago this quarter versus the losses of this are just -- they're almost breath taking. >> we're looking at massive losses for the quarter. $17 billion in losseses this quarter versus last year this
time. the company was making $4.4 billion, but what's most important about all of this is what shareholders have lost in the bargain. shareholders have lost $70 billion as a result of all this. >> and in the end of the day, does bp -- this is a question that's come up in the first weeks and after the first month and the second month -- do they have the resources to back up what has to be $30 billion or more in funds to pay for this ongoing? >> they have set aside now $32 billion. they're selling some of their assets to pay for the cleanup costs. and as we know, the obama administration has requested that they put aside that $20 billion fund. they'll make the first $5 billion payment shortly. >> rebecca jarvis, as always, thank you very much. betty nguyen is right over there and has the rest of the morning's news. good morning. at least six homes have been burned by a wildfire it this h california this morning. that fire is in the mountain
town of kernville near the sequoia national forest. some people have been forced to evacuate, fwhou one has been injured. also in california, more highly paid officials in a los angeles suburb have bowed to the demands of furious residents. protestors in the blue collar town of bell had already succeeded in getting rid of three top officials. at a meeting yesterday, they went after city council members who were being paid $100,000 a year for part-time work. >> you failed to do your job. you failed to listen to us about our taxes. and you guys do not deserve to be running the city. >> the council members voted to slash their salaries by 90%. some residents say they should just quit. overseas this morning, day three of a joint exercise by the u.s. and south korean navys. the carrier george washington is one of about 20 u.s. and south korean vessels taking part. the show of force is aimed at north korea which sang a south

what's happening across the country. got some troubles in the northern plain states. and as we take a look at the dakotas, for this afternoon and into sections of minnesota, then into the evening, we widen out that area. minnesota, iowa, into wisconsin and michigan, stretching back to places like nebraska, watch for the hail, the high winds, the rain. could see upwards of two incheses in some locations. we'll keep an eye out. in the meantime, nice right along the northwest coastline. high pressure, pacific cool air downward. but keep in mind the high pressure system so far out that inland we're still talking about high temperatures and high heat, as well. that's a quick
scar bon copy of the weather in the northeast as we head into the rest of the day today. and storms brewing in the four corners area. talk about that at 7:30. >> we will check in with you then. hangs. just four days left until chelsea chin done's wedding. one report says the lavish affair could cost as much as $5 million. elaine quijano is in rhinebeck, new york this morning for us with more on the big event. lent of buzz there, i'm sure. >> reporter: plenty of buzz that's exactly right. and some people might be wondering what kind of person wins the heart of chelsea clinton and the approval of her prominent parents. someone who has a lot in common with his bride to be. his name may not ring a bell, but chelsea clinton's fiance,
32-year-old marc mezvinsky, is hour. >> they've been together for a long time. so i don't know, i'm thumbs up on him. >> reporter: is he a cutie? >> very cute. >> reporter: mezvinsky and clinton first met as teenagers at a leadership retreat in 1993. they both attended stanford university. he thousand works as annen investment bank errands lives in this building in a $4 million, three-bedroom apartment on new york's fifth avenue. but his family has faced some adversity. mezvinsky's father, former iowa congressman ed mezvinsky, pleaded guilty to fraud and served five years in prison. he was released in 2008. observers say as children of politicians who faced public turmoil, both marc and chelsea understand how harsh a negative spotlight can be. >> i think it's huge. i think both of them understand each other in a way that no one else can. they understand what the other
one has been through. >> reporter: now though the details are shrouded in secrecy, their wedding is the talk of the town. >> nothing's happening. >> reporter: despite no official confirmation that the wedding will happen at the near by astro courts, the rhinebeck town board voted to approve extra funding for additional police on saturday. >> i'd like to make a motion to allocate $2500 for the possible event. >> reporter: now, celebrity guests are reportedly staying behind me here at the historic inn in downtown rhinebeck. the owners here we're told have signed a confidentiality agreement. one person we know who will not be attending the white house said yesterday president obama will not be here. erica? >> that was one of the big questions. elaine quijano, thanks. only $2500 extra dollars just in case? that doesn't seem like enough. >> i wonder if it would be fun just to go and stand on the

photo. they're going to give us a glimpse behind the castle walls. whose hand is that? we'll have to find out. >> royal family's opened a flicker page. >> they have. they are way more tech savvy than i thought. >> dave is at the weather board. a lot going on out there. >> i just friended prince charles on facebook. a phasing whate inmazing what's. i didn't friend prince charles. we talked about the fact that in the four corners area, we'll see rough area. the mountainous areas of the southwest, watch it. even 12re67i instretching down phoenix as the system begins to move eastward, that's a possibility, but it's this area, the area in the green, where we could see flash flooding and heavy rains, upwards of one to two inches. and when that stuff comes down, it comes down quickly, there is that possibility of flooding. across the country, temperatures moderating just a little bet. look at that, 92 in new york city, but lower humidity. kind of a carbon copy from
yesterday. a really nice day up and down the eastern seaboard. the humidity still sticks around in the southeast, so it will feel a little less comfortable. and warm temperatures, but rather uneventful as we head into the great lakes area, but it is in the northern plain states where you see that cold air begin to push on through and that volatility in the atmosphere. that's a quick look at the national maps. here's an early look at what's going on this your area.
traveling through minneapolis/st. paul, watch it, you could see airport delays. erica, we'll send it over to you. we want it to turn now to the tragic case of mistaken identity. the father of one of the misidentified women says the hospital simply notified the wrong family. we'll speak with the aunts of e of the girls in a moment, but first hattie kauffman explains exactly what happened. >> reporter: hate monday, officials from st. joseph's hospital in phoenix tried to explain how they mixed up the identities of who survived a horrific car accident. they got it wrong when they originally told family members that marlena cantu lived and her best friend, abby guerra, died. >> we interviewed family members that evening and asked for any discernible visual information that could help us make that positive identification. >> reporter: the hospital claims the young women's severe injuries led to the mistake, but monday, frank cantu, the father of the deceased, said officials
actually mixed up the taem members. >> instead of telling abby's parents, okay, your daughter is upstairs, they told me my daughter is upstairs. >> reporter: for six days, frank cantu sat praying at what he thought was his daughter's bedside. only to find out she never survived the crash. >> and they said i think there's been a tragic error. >> reporter: it was marlena's best friend, abby guerra, who had survived. though her parents were told she died. meanwhile, frank's daughter, marlena, had been tagged jane dough, unidentified because of a backlog of bodies. suddenly the cantus are making funeral plans for the daughter who was supposed to be getting back to college. >> a book had come in she ordered. >> reporter: oh, gosh. >> it's tough. >> reporter: frank cantu has a mission, to stop mistakes like this from happening again. >> my daughter was the most fresh issues thing i ever had.
everybody loved her. >> reporter: hattie kauffman, cbs news, los angeles. >> joining us this morning there phoenix is abby's aunt. thanks for being with us. you can tell us how is abby doing this morning? >> as of when i left the hospital this morning, she's still in critical condition. >> and how is the family doing? i just can't imagine the roller coaster of emotions you all have been on. >> everybody -- her family hasn't left her side. they've stayed at the hospital. of course they're tired and exhausted, but they're not going to leave. they're going to stay there to support their daughter. >> i know that the family met with the arizona department for public safety yesterday looking for an explanation and part of that explanation was simply that the offices has been overloaded, they had a backlog of bodies. what's the reaction to that as an explanation? >> well, we did not actually
meet with dps yesterday. they had a press release. we saw what you saw on the news. so we were told they were backlogged. we were told from the beginning that they -- well, i should say we were told on saturday when we found out that abby was alive that they had 120 bodies just in that week and that people were on vacation, they were backlogged. we were told by -- that by the chief medical examiner himself. >> and i understand in that press release it says that the department says, quote, we interviewed family members that evening, asked for any discernible visual information. you say that's not true that there was never an opportunity to identify the body? >> that is true. and that's one thing that's so upsetting especially when we hear it on tv just like everyone
else because we found out about the accident occurred what we're told about 8:30 in the evening and we were told approximately 11:50 that evening that abby had died. we were never even given the opportunity to see any of the other people. we were never given the opportunity to look at the body. we were never asked any questions. we were just told that she had passed away at the scene. so that's very, very saddening for us because it's not true anded a and anded a had we had the opportunity to look at the bodies or the other people at that time, maybe this could have been avoided. >> has the family been this touch at all with the cantu family? >> yes. we also had a -- we have seen them, we also had a car wash
last sunday to benefit both abby and marlena. i know abby's been described by her soccer coaches as being competent it difference, someone who never gave up, and we wish you the best of luck as abby fights for this and we know that you will be right this by her side. thanks. >> thank you. and thank you for all the support. if you'd like to learn more about the story, also information on how you can help both families, we do have that information at our website, early show.cbsnews.com. and coming up, the shocking results of our early show experiment. we'll show you what happens to lost children as compared to lost to dog lost dogs. this is "the early show" on cbs. ♪ daisy, do a dollop

that can send any parent into panic mode. well, experts say parents need to take steps to prevent their kids from getting lost and also teach them what to do in case they get separated. brooke branch always keeps a close eye on her twins, but one day at the zoo, her son just vanished. >> i was frantic. >> reporter: millions of parents know that feeling all too well. more than 2,000 children get lost or go missing every single day. >> it's incredibly common unfortunately. >> reporter: jill is a child safety expert who says most small children don't know their parents' names, addresses or phone number, often making it difficult to reunite lost children with their families. >> if there a phone number and the parent is two aisles away, it takes minutes. but if the child child doesn't know the phone number, it can take much longer. rrpt parents shouldn't assume that passers by will automatically help a child find
his or her way home. a lost dog will often be rescued more quickly than a lost child. we wanted to see if that was true. we took a well trained dog and a child actress to a park. we told 4 1/2-year-old olivia to pre-tent to be lost near this playground. our she willity named rascal was given a tag with our cell phone number. we let him wander around with his leash making it look like he had run away from his other than. within three minutes, rascal was rescued. >> i'm sure someone lost a dog, so i wanted to find the rightful owner. >> reporter: but watch what happens to olivia. even though she looks sad and is all alone, plenty of people just walk on by. these women notice owe live yarks but do nothing. this woman even comes up to olivia, chasing another child. but then walks away. our expert wasn't surprised. >> people are often reluctant to help lost children because they're afraid of being perceived as someone who is trying to hurt the child as
opposed to someone trying to help the child. >> reporter: then finally, after an hour -- >> are you with somebody, sweetie, or are you lost? >> reporter: this woman notices olivia and comes to her aid. >> i walked past and realized there was nobody really with her and i thought that could be my own child. >> reporter: in the end, it took 20 times longer to rescue our child than our lost dog. >> oftentimes the dog will be running on a leash without their other than, so people can see that's a lost dog. they can go up to the dog and there's dog tags. a phone number or contact information. easy. >> reporter: experts say lost kids can be found much more quickly if they, too, carried emergency contact information. and are taught what to do if they get lost. teach them it's okay to approach a helpful stranger like a mommy with children. >> the child needs to say my mommy's telephone number is in the back of my jacket or my mommy's phone number is on my arm. that's something you need to teecht child if that's something you're going to it use. >> reporter: as for brooke
branch, she eventually found her son at the zoo, alone and unharmed. she's made sure her twins now know her name and phone number. >> it just takes one second to look away, you look down and your child's gone. so it could happen to anyone. >> and it's always a good idea for parents to have a current photo of their kids. one easy thing to do, take a picture of your kid, put it on your cell phone, before you head out to the zoo or the amusement park that morning. so if they do get lost, you say these are my kids, this is what they look like. >> my kids are 16 and 20. i'm not sure they know their parents' names. so you have some things here to help out that could raep help in a jam if your kid went missing. >> right. if you want your kid to wear some sort of identification, a few options. we have a velcro wrist band, only $8. you slip it on the wrist, the information is inside. these are portable ones that you can bring on vacation with you. this one is called -- >> this seems more likely.
>> the shoes id. just attach it to the sneaker. and then also something here which is the child locator. your child wanders away -- >> you would know. >> they start beeping. >> susan koeppen, thanks so much. we'll be right back. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. ♪ special k protein shakes -- ♪ a truly great-tasting breakfast shake.

they did sponsor a study. they only looked at about #84 bag, and no shock, she found they had bacteria. 51% had coal low form, 12% contained e. coli. but they did not find any salmonella or listeria p. and it's important to remember that we've said it before, bacteria are everywhere. we don't expect these bags to be sterile unless you have a weakened immune system. they really are not going to make you sick. >> even if you look at this and you say maybe it's not such a big thing to worry about but you want to make sure that your family stays safe, what kind of precautions should you take? >> you don't want to lick the inside of the bag, but even if you do, you can probably be rest assured it's not going to make you sick. so one easy thing you can do, clean the bag. whether you clean it by hand or put it in a washing machine or use bleach or use an eco-friendly cleaner, just
cleaning it will help a lot. other than that, you want to try to when you're shopping use the cold -- get the cold food last because bacteria loves warm environments and you want to keep the stuff cold. check the packaging for dates and labels. >> that's what julie said, leaky meat. what if you have leaky meat? >> you want to separate it in your cart. so put about the produce and stuff you'll be eating, the fresh stuff, separate from all of the stuff that can leak like meats. >> because especially if you're out there and you have imitation crab meat salad, that could -- >> now, listen, we always say we can't live our life in a plastic bubble, but all kidding aside, in the summer the cases of foodborne illness they do spike. and 76 million cases of foodborne illness in this country every year. occasionally it can make people very sick especially the old, the young, weakened immune systems. so you want to take basic precautions. >> so the danger zone especially in the summertime is what? >> here's the back tee bacteria
lesson for you. bacteria love warm environments, so that's why in the operating room we keep the temperature cold. you want to keep cold foods cold, and you want to keep hot foods or prepared foods hot. if they're on the for more than an hour, if you're in doubt, throw out.uon the for more than an hour, if you're in doubt, throw out.ton the for mo than an hour, if you're in doubt, throw out.e for more than hour, if you're in doubt, throw out. for more than an hour, if you're in doubt, throw out. this is actually cooking under the lights. >> and you need to make sure the boards and stuff -- >> and you can always clean them with bleach. though out your sponge on a regular basis. common sense stuff. >> dr. jennifer ashton, thanks very much. up next, julie finds out that's thing at a great restaurant is a lot different than working at one. our dream job series begins when we come back on "the early show." >> announcer: "cbs health watch" sponsored by v-8 v-fusion. vegetables that taste like fruit.
